Wonthaggi Dog Obedience Group (WonDOG) was established in 2001 and has come a long way in 23 years.
From humble beginnings at the Wonthaggi Primary School, the Club now meets at the off-leash dog area behind the Wonthaggi Recreation Reserve 'Butch West' oval. The grounds are accessed via Strickland Street (off Korumburra Road).
Our members come from Wonthaggi and as far away as Leongatha, Korumburra, Phillip Island, Fish Creek and Foster.
WonDOG offers obedience training for owners and dogs of all levels and welcomes new members at any time of the year.
The Club is fortunate enough to have a great collection of agility equipment for members to use on training days (weather permitting).
Classes include a mix of obedience training and agility.
There are 7 obedience levels from Introduction - Blue to the Advanced levels, top being Green.
To move through the levels the instructors assess you and your dog and will only recommend a 'pass up' to the next level (or colour) when we feel you are ready.
WonDOG offers obedience training for owners and dogs of all levels.
WHAT WE DO
Our main objective is to assist members to have well-socialised, well-mannered dogs. We use non-forceful methods and positive reinforcement.
We are an enthusiastic not-for-profit club, run by a Committee of volunteers.
Our trainers are members themselves and also volunteer their services to help people in the community enjoy working with their dogs.
